Computer Engineering

Career Description

As a computer engineer, you might develop cutting-edge music software, come up with a better system to text your friends, or invent a new hand-held device. But looking beyond personal computers, did you realize that computer engineers are vitally important in almost every area you can think of? In a hospital, for example, computers track patient records, control X-ray and MRI machines, and offer surgeons visual maps of the operations they are performing. Becoming a computer engineer offers you an enormous range of possibilities, from developing software for managing an air traffic control tower to producing animation for the movie industry.
